It's Saturday - time for a trip to the Farmer's Marker, a stop at the local range perhaps and then a frosty adult beverage on the porch. Until I'm back a clip from one of my favorite movies and a recent weekend kitchen experiment (made without the assistance of a cookbook OR Minions)
"It's So Fluffy!" Waffles with Maple Bourbon Cider Syrup
These waffles have a consistency almost like pastry or pancakes, very fluffy, tender and light in crumb with just enough crisp on the top to hold in those delicious pockets of butter and homemade syrup. If you're used to a Crisp Belgium Style Waffle, give them a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.
The hot syrup can be made with ingredients you likely have on hand - a cup of maple syrup, a cup of cider, a pinch of cayenne and a half a shot of Bourbon (more depending on your relatives). The directions are in the link above for the waffles.
Serve with butter and add some crisp bacon or sausages and sliced peaches. Drizzle all with a bit of the syrup for a nice "breakfast for supper" Sunday meal.

And the corn version below, replace 1/4 cup of the flour with corn meal and replace the sugar with honey. The rest of the directions remain unchanged.
